Monday, August 10 Day 9 Sandy to Detroit, OR 89 miles with 5700' of climbing

As I am now finishing this blog, it has begun raining. We will just hope it will be dry again tomorrow morning! Tomorrow to Bend is a long and hard day -- 117 miles with 7900' of climbing.

Jeff Eorio, who was on Bike Tour 2 of Skyline Dr/Blue Ridge Parkway, will visit and we'll enjoy some good Bend beer at 5:00. At 6:30, I'm having dinner with Dan Jones, who was a good friend in high school.
